Cameras help cut red-light-running but thousands still do it

Todd Niall Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi Neighbours, motorists running through red traffic lights create some of the highest death and injury risks. Auckland Transport's roll-out of cameras is making a difference, but do you think penalties are tough enough ? Read the story below:

At-Home Fire Safety Checklist

Fire and Emergency from Fire and Emergency New Zealand

With everyone staying home, it’s now more important than ever for everyone to be fire-safe. People can find information on our website - fireandemergency.nz...

We’re heading into winter, and with households self-isolating together, there’ll be more cooking at home, and more use of open fires, heaters, and dryers - all things which can increase fire risk.

New Zealanders can be confident that Fire and Emergency is well-prepared and ready to respond to emergencies as usual during the nationwide self- isolation period.

Please call 111 if you have a fire, we will ask you whether anyone at the address is self-isolating or has a confirmed case of COVID-19. Where this is the case, we already have necessary measures in place to ensure everyone’s safety including protective clothing, gloves, masks, safety glasses and mask.

Ok, HERE'S a little bit of cuteness for everybody to enjoy. 😃

My POOR confused little lockdown friend (not my cat! The neighbours' cat!), wondering why I can't let her in. AS I took this photo, I was saying, "I DO love you! I DO! It's just I can't let you in, coz lockdown rules." 😃 Hehehe. 😃 You MAY NOT be able to see this quite clearly (my dumb phone's camera sucks) but she actually has slightly crossed eyes! 😃 No I don't know her name, but I call her Tabby, coz she is one - she has a collar with a worn-out scruffy leopard print bowtie attached, and she's been visiting my garden the past two days (and the past several months, actually) and driving the mynah birds CRAZY whenever she appears!!!!!!!! No, I don't mind - she keeps me company but has to stay OUTSIDE during lockdown as she is part of someone else's bubble and I don't want to pass anything on to her owner on her fur. 😃❤️️❤️️
